The epicurean and the ethical

Phoebe Buffay (Friends)
Mr. Spock (Star Trek)


The 1 and the 7 complement each other on a lot of points.
The 1 is attracted by the joviality, enthusiasm, optimism, adaptability, energy, insatiable curiosity, the desire to discover new things, and the sense of fun of the 7.
The 7 is attracted by the self-control, consciousness, integrity, reliability, perfectionism, the desire to improve the environment, the sense of responsibility and organization of the 1.
The 7 helps the 1 to relax a bit more and to be sometimes more spontaneous. While the 1 helps the 7 to be more focused on his projects.

Points where to be careful

7 usually prefers to improvise when he initiates something, while 1 prefers things to be planned. This can create conflicts of interest.
The 1 can have trouble with the behavior of the 7 which can sometimes seem too unruly, egocentric and scattered. 7s may tend to distract themselves quite easily.
What can make crazy 1 is if the 7 allows himself to not respect their plans to do something he finds more fun.
The 7 can sometimes feel too controlled by the 1 and get frustrated.
